Hooray For Reading
Hooray For Reading was a "series of ten, minute-long shorts created by Field Communications for children. These would air during the commercial breaks on kid's shows and cartoons. These featured kids briefly doing some other activity besides reading (the "hook") and then describing a book they like using a brief dramatization of a part in the story."
I found these in the Museum of Classic Chicago TV on FuzzyMemories.tv, an enormous collaborative archive of off-air recordings of American television.
Here are my favorites from Hooray For Reading:
Hooray for Reading - "Life on a Plastic Planet?" (#7, 1979)
Hooray for Reading - 'Then Again, Maybe I Won't' (#4, 1979)
Hooray for Reading - "The Accident" (#5, 1979)
Hooray for Reading - "The Glad Man" (#1, 1979)
Hooray for Reading - "The TV Kid" (#6, 1979)
